Hlinka Gretzky Cup
What is the Hlinka/Gretzky Cup?
The event is an international U-18 best-on-best tournament. In WHL terms, these are players entering their 17 year old season, and in most cases are eligible for the 2019 NHL draft. This event serves as the most heavily scouted event for NHL teams in preparation for that season’s Draft. Notable alumni include Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Matthew Dumba, Darnell Nurse, and Johnny Gaudreau!
When is the 2018 Hlinka/Gretzky Cup?
The event takes place Aug 6-11, 2018. Games in Red Deer at Servus Arena are held Aug 6-8, as well as a Team Canada Pre-Competition game on Aug 4.
What countries are involved?
Group A: Canada, Sweden, Czech Republic, Switzerland (Rogers Place, Edmonton)
Group B: USA, Russia, Finland, Slovakia (Servus Arena, Red Deer)
How do I secure tickets?
Rebels Season Ticket Members will be offered an exclusive presale opportunity for the 7 game event package. Information has been circulated to Season Ticket Members as part of their 2018/19 renewal package. Given the limited seating capacity (1,400) at the brand new Servus Arena, tickets are expected to be in high demand. IF REBELS SEASON TICKET MEMBER DEMAND EXCEEDS SUPPLY, WE WILL WORK TO OFFER SINGLE GAME TICKETS FIRST TO THOSE WHO SUBMITTED INTEREST IN PACKAGES.
Why Servus Arena and not the Enmax Centirum?
While we expect the event to sell out, this is a new event to Canada. Our goal is to fill the stands and give the players a great atmosphere. This is also an opportunity to prepare the facility for the 2019 Canada Winter Games.
